il bacio


il Bacioil bacio – Festa Italia, Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica, CA, USA

I watched this human statue stand perfectly still for about ten minutes while I took a few shots that I knew would end up in the trash bin. My mind began to wander to the gelato stand nearby and was about to leave when a woman moved closer to get a better look at him. He immediately swooped down on one knee and kissed her hand (It was an Italian festa after all).
